The evil of lies

 The evil of lies :

"Lying is a great sin." The word is recognized in every religion. Especially in Islam it is identified as the root of all sins. Lies encourage people to commit sins and crimes. Many lies are resorted to to suppress a lie. People dare to commit crimes mainly by relying on lies, no one likes a liar. Even your own. The Most Merciful Allah also cursed them, the Holy Qur'an says-

لَعْنَةُ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ

Translation: God's curse on the liars.

Lies make people hell. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:

إِيَّاكُمْ وَالْكِذَبَ فَإِنَّ الْكِذَبَ يَهْدِى إِلَى الْفُجُورِ وَإِنَّ الْفُجُورَ يَهْدِى إِلَى النَّارِ وَمَا يَزَالُ الرُّجُلُ يَكْذِبُ وَتَتَحَرَّى الْكِذَبَ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ عِندَ اللهِ كَذَّابًا

That is, you live from lies. Lies lead to iniquity and sin leads to hell. A person who always tells lies and tries to lie, is written as a big liar in the court of Allah.

Mishkat Sharif, Page-412) How great and vile lies are, it is revealed in a hadith Sharif of Rasulullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:

إِذَا كَذَبَ الْعَبْدُ تَبَعاَدَ عَنْهُ الْمَلَكَ مِيْلَكَ مِيْلاً مِنْ نَتَيْنِ مَا جَاءَ بِهِ That is, when he tells a lie, the angel (who is guarding him) moves a mile away because of the stench of the lie. That is, so foul-smelling that its stench spreads for a mile.

[Previous, page-413]

Lying cannot be the nature of a true believer. He who is a believer is truthful. Truth and falsehood are opposites. These two can never coexist in one person. It is narrated in the hadith that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was asked:

ايَكُونُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ جَبَانًا قَالَ نَعَمُ - فَقِيلَ لَهُ

اَيَكُونُ الْمُؤْمِنُ كَذَّابًا قَالَ لَا

That is, believers can be timid? Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, Yes. He was also asked, can believers be miserly? The Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, said, Yes. He was asked again, can a believer be a liar? He said, “No”. [Mishkat Sharif, page-414.

That is, cowardice and stinginess are not anti-faith natures. In any believer it can be infected. As a result, he can be called a coward and miser. But no believer can be guilty of lying. Because every Muslim is born with truthfulness. There are people in the society who lie in order to present themselves as learned, wise and holy, to gain praise from the audience in fairs and to make people laugh. The Prophet repented three times for them. The Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, said:

وَيْلٌ لِمَنْ يُحَدِّثُ فَيَكْذِبُ لِيُضْحِكَ بِهِ الْقَوْمَ وَيْلٌ لَهُ وَيْلٌ لَّهُ means repentance for those who talk and lie to make people laugh, repentance for them, repentance for them. . Pragukta, page- 412. False hypocritical nature. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:

إِنَّ الْكِذَبَ بَابٌ مِّنْ أَبْوَابِ النِّفَاقِ

That is, without a doubt, falsehood is one of the doors of the hypocrites. The Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, said:

إلى مِّنْ كُنْ فِيْهِ فَهُوَ مُنَافِقٌ وَإِنْ صَامَ وَصَلَّى وَزَعَمَ أَنَّهُ مُسْسلِمٌ إِذَا حَدَّتَ كَذِبَ i.e. in which there will be three natures

And he is a hypocrite; Though he fasts, prays, and thinks himself a Muslim: he lies when he speaks, breaks his promise, and betrays when he deposits. It destroys people's fairness, honesty and acceptance. Muhaddiseen Keram would not accept hadiths from them if they were proven to be liars.

[Bukhari and Muslim.


Hazrat Shibli Ta'ala Anhu was a saint of high rank. He was not willing to accept any unreal matter as an example. But there is no fault in the example. He came to a master for learning knowledge, the master said, read. (Zayd killed Amr). Then Hazrat Shibli Radiyallahu Ta'ala Anhu asked, did Zaid really kill Amr? The master replied - not killed, but it is an example. Then Hazrat Shibli Radiyallahu Ta'ala Anhu said - I will not read such knowledge, whose foundation is based on lies. With this he left.

Nuzhatul Majalis, page-119/ It has already been said that lies are the root and source of all sins. People engage in wickedness based on the belief that they will be freed by denying lies. So the source must be closed first. A person came to the court of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and said, “O Messenger of Allah! I want to be a Muslim. But I have a lot of bad nature in me, which I can't give up at all. I commit adultery, drink, steal and lie. Please allow me those. I will slowly leave one by one.” The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, asked him, "Can you give up lying?" The man thought, it is easy. And he said, "Okay; I promised - I will give up lying." He left saying this. Now when she wanted to commit zina according to her habit, she thought that I will not be able to tell a lie when I appear in the court of the Messenger of Allah. And if I tell the truth, I will be ashamed and I will find peace. Therefore, he renounced his will. Thus he wished to drink and steal at night. Just then that word came to his heart. As a result, he could not tell a lie, so he renounced all the sins one by one and was saved from destruction. Nuzhatul Majalis, Page-119/

Lies can be of two types: a. For the purpose of creating strife between people, for one's own gain, for the loss of others, or for the purpose of obtaining relief from the punishment of wrongdoing. It is neither permissible nor haram. Allah says - "Avoid lying." Surah Hajj, verse-30

  b. It is not only permissible to lie for the purpose of reconciliation between two disputing persons or parties or for the benefit of a Muslim or to save a Muslim from harm; Rather, it becomes mandatory in certain cases. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

لَيْسَ الْكَذَّابُ الَّذِي يُصْلِحُ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ

That is, that person is not a liar, who settles between people. Mishkat Sharif, page-412. Hazrat Sawban Radiyallahu Ta'ala Anhu said-

الْكِذَبُ كُلَّهُ إِثْمٌ إِلَّا مَا نَفَعَ بِهِ مُسْسلِمًا أَوْدَفَعَ عَنْهُ ضَرَرًا

That is, every false sin; However, a lie that benefits a Muslim or is told to save a Muslim from harm is permissible. Toshkeel Kirdar, Urdu, Page-76/

But it is better not to resort to falsehood as long as truth is possible. Always keep in mind the words of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam

الصدقُ يُنْجِي وَالْكِذَبُ يُهْلِكُ

That is, "Truth liberates and falsehood destroys."
